Nebraska Wins Fast Game by Score of
6 to 2 Baseball Sweaters Here
the Alumni Game Tomorrow.
Tho Cornhusker baseball team play
ed in old-time style last Saturday, trim
ming the Mlssourlans to the tune of
6-2. Tho game was a very pleasant
aurpriso to tho supporters of the
Scarlet and Cream for the team played
much better than It has at any time
this season. It showed an ability to
come up to the scratch' in the tight
places of tho game that argues well
for the fortunes of the team as a win
ning combination. .
Tho game was interesting thruout.
Missouri took the lead at tho second
and third innings, but in tho last half
of the third the Cornhuskers started a
batting Tally which landed them in the
lead and' they maintained this for the
rest of the game. Dudgeon was the
first man up and with two strikes
against him hit a single to right Ward
was hit by the pitcher and Sleutor
made first on a slow grounder to third.
TJeltzor followed with a nice single
which scored Dudgeon and Ward and a
moment later Sleuter crossed the plate
on Salisbury's wild pitch.
In the seventh the Cornhuskers re
peated the performanpe, making three
more runs, this placing the score 0-2
in their favor.. No more scoring was
done during the game.
Ward pitched a good game altho he
was a1 little wild at times. Salisbury,
the Missouri pitcher, was very effective
at first but weakened at critical times
and failed to hold his opponents. The
fielding on both sides was good, Ne
braska being charged with two and
Missouri with only one error. Nebras
ka evidenced unexpected strength in
hatting, Sleuter and Rine each getting
three hits,. Beltzer two, and Carroll,
and Dudgeon each one.
Beltzer had his ankle badly twisted
In an attempted slide to 'the home
plate. It is hoped that ho will be .able
to accompany the team on their trip, as
his absence would seriously weaken
the chances for a good record.
The baseball sweaters for this year's
team have arrive'd and tvIH soon be
distributed. They are of the same style
as the football sweaters of last fall
and in color are cream with scarlet
trimmings. Manager Eager is to be
commended for his enterprise in se
curing the sweaters before the team
starts on Its trip. It will put up a
much better appearance as a team and
the men will get much more satisfac
tion out of their "trimmings."
Tomorrow tho team will play a
game on Nebraska field with an al
umni team composed of some of Ne
braska's old-time stars. The time of
the game will be 3:30 p. m., admis
sion twenty-five cents, ladies free.
The line-up of the team will be: Belt
zer,' pitcher; . Hyde, catcher; "Ike"
Raymond first base; "Dude" Hammel,
second; Clarence Moore, shortstop;
Earl Gaddls, third; Mickle, right

Cadets Make Good Marks With the
During the past six weeks the Uni
versity cadets have been given an
abundance of target practice in the
basement of the Aomory with a 22
calibre Winchester musket. The range
is fifty feet, and the number of pos
sible points to be made 1b twenty-five.
Each man Is allowed but five shots,
making five bulls-eyes necessary in
order to attain a record of twenty-five
points. Tho not one has, so far reached
the twenty-five record, a great many
remarkably good marks have been
made. .Some of. the best records were
those of A. G. McNeel, 24; C. J. Frank
forter, 24; D. A. Keubler, 23; O. L.
Phillips, 23; R. L. Williams, 23.
Thi3 target practice is a feature that
was not Introduced last year, and is
greatly appreciated by the men. Those
drilling last year were greatly disap
pointed at not being given any
target practice during the year, es
pecially at camp, where they had ex
pected gun practice at ldng range. The
men will soon be given blank cat
ridges for firing practice with the new
guns, and will probably be given
some further target work at camp.
